ConsToo glitzy for some and very, very busy

The city of Como has two distinct faces: one historic, facing the lake, and one industrial, which extends into the Brianza. Como is best approached from the north, either across the lake or along one of the lakeside roads, when the town is at its most magical: green, grey and a soft ochre. Bathed...

Lakes surrounded me as a child. Every summer, my family and I would go to a Lake somewhere nearby and rent a houseboat for a week. These bodies of water aren't often crystal clear. I've been to some that are. Some that when you are in the middle of the lake you can still see almost to the bottom...

Just a few miles south of the Swiss border, Como is the first town in Italy. Very different in style and culture to Italy's thriving cities, Mediterranean holiday resorts and antique sights, Como exudes the mild charm of Lombardy region. I was a bit surprised myself when I realised that I hadn't...

Visiting Lake Como in the first week of June 2005 it was refreshing to find such a beautiful place not overrun with tourists. We stayed in a villa rental, Casa Pree, located in Rezzonico, a small town about 2 miles north of Menaggio on the western side of the lake. I'll review Casa Pree, the...

“ONCE UPON A TIME”

ProMany

ConsNone I can think of

Once upon a time there was a glacier that ran, in an upside down "Y" shape, through the Italian Alps down to less prominent mountains. When the glacier melted a beautiful lake shone in its place. Right at the bottom of one of the two arms of the "Y" (the left one, looking on the Italian map, in...

Conslot's of traffic

Como is a beautiful city on the lake. You can easy reach Como from Milan by train in less then an hour or, if you are coming from North Europe, Como is the first city across the border with Switzerland.

ConsNone

Como is situated at the end of the Lake of Como, surrounded by high mountains. It is not far from Milan and it well linked to it by bus and train, with Ferrovie Nord, a privately owned company. You may want to go to Como to see the lake, the town iteself is worth a quick visit. In summer you can...

ProNone

ConsNone

Como is a very good place to buy silk products. Until 2 years ago there was a factory outlet in one of the secondary roads coming from Varese, I am not sure if it is still there, I would assume it is. You could buy designer ties for basement prices, without the label on them! Apart from this...
